East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is inviting bids on more than 100 items of clothing worn by Ed Sheeran – including a Burberry suit jacket he wore at the 2013 Grammy Awards when he performed alongside Elton John.

The jacket still has a $20 bill and a taxi company card in one pocket and is likely to attract interest from fans of Ed across the globe.

Other lots on offer include a Duffer of St George T-shirt he wore to the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in 2011 and a Jack Wills hoody he has been pictured in at a recording studio next to world-renowned DJ Martin Garrix.

Ed, 25, has been an EACH Ambassador since 2014 and become known for donating his clothes and old instruments to the charity, helping it to bring in thousands of pounds. He has also paid a visit to EACH’s Treehouse hospice in Ipswich, which is close to his family home in Framlingham.

This set of clothing, also including an orange hoodie with the words Justice for Gingers emblazoned across the front, was recently dropped off at EACH’s Ipswich fundraising office by his mum, Imogen.

Jason High, EACH eBay manager, said: “We’re handling a huge amount of Ed’s clothes at the moment and I’d like to say a special thanks to Brandbank, which has generously taken photos of each individual item, for free, for us to use on our eBay store.” The EACH eBay store was launched in March 2015 and has brought in some £35,000 since.

Ian Nicolson, EACH head of retail and trading, said: “Our eBay store is becoming ever more valuable to us and I’m delighted that we can boost its profile further thanks to the support of our Ambassador Ed Sheeran.”

The eBay auction runs until Sunday, November 20, with lots to appear from 7pm, November 10 and close from 6pm on the Sunday.

EACH is also taking this opportunity to boost the profile of its shop in Framlingham, as it has kept four items of Ed’s clothing back for a silent auction. Those keen to get their hands on a Guinness hoodie, a T-shirt of Ed himself hugging a guitar, a pair of Kenneth Cole trousers and a pair of Nike trainers will have to go to the shop in order to place their bid. The silent auction runs from today until Saturday, November 19. The winners will be contacted by Wednesday, 23.

These auctions comes after the sale of Ed’s teenage drum kit closed last week – which made £2,650 for the charity.

The Suffolk singing sensation will also raise funds for the EACH nook appeal – a £10 million campaign to transform children’s palliative care across Norfolk, including building a new hospice - by performing live at a gala dinner in the Natural History Museum’s famous Hintze Hall on Wednesday, November 30.
